Open Konqueror/Nautilus/whatever, right click the file, select "extract here". Open a console, cd to the new directory, ie: cd flashplayer-installer

type ./install-flashplayer (I think) and then follow the instructions.

Fuller instructions are available on the Macromedia page where you downloaded.

log in as root, go to command prompt.

type:

tar zxvf flashplayerfilename.tar.gz

cd flashplayerfilenamedirectory

./installflashplayer

or whatever the name is,

then, if not sure where your browser is installed, open new prompt and type:

locate mozilla

if haven't created locate database, type slocate -u and wait til done, then do locate mozilla.

type path when required by flash installer and you are set.
